Last I looked the economy was still in the shitter, so the theme of this year's preface is doing SXSW on the (relative) cheap. The main misconception that I hear about SXSW – even among fellow Austinites – is that it costs a fortune to attend. Yes, it's true that if you plan on attending [...]
Municipal Waste, Vans shoes, a marching band, BMX, Skateboards, and a mobile party? It's not only the best idea for a parade ever, it's all part of the new Vans commercial you can see below.
So here I am back at Station 4 in St. Paul, waiting in line to be conquered by some of the finest metal bands that Greece, Brazil, Jerusalem, Canada Rome, and Colombia (via the US) have to offer. Three patch-vested teenagers who reek of B.O. are doing their best Beavis & Butthead impersonations behind me [...]
The Chariot has always been good if you really appreciate the hardcore roots of certain facets of metal. They usually present a great raw product, as well as that awesome sense of chaos with the math elements involved. However, a good amount of press has been done on their latest album, One Wing and how [...]
Taking his adage if not necessarily his credo from Emiliano Zapata, Matthew Widener (Cretin, Citizen) launches a new one man project in Liberteer, the flagship project - Better To Die On Your Feet Than Live On Your Knees – serving as a rallying cry of patriotism by way of civil disobedience.
When our photographer Aline Miladinovich had the opportunity to spend a few weeks bunking on Mayhem's tour bus, this past Fall, she could not turn down the opportunity. The following is her recounting of spending two weeks on the road with the band, with highlights including altercations with cops, Thanksgiving with black metal bands and [...]
Every year, Rob asks me to contribute a year-end list to this fine establishment, and every year, I harsh everyone’s buzz by submitting the most putrid, willfully esoteric hodgepodge of sonic brutality I can conjure up. The following list spotlights some of the best underground releases of 2011; it’s been a good year for metal, [...]
Many of death metal's greatest moments are martial in nature. From Bolt Thrower's crushing cannonades to Amon Amarth's victorious marches, metal and war are inseparable companions. Vore capitalize on this synergy to great effect, plowing a potent path of aural avarice. Like the best articulations of aggression, Gravehammer has the power to physically propel a [...]
by: "Grim" Kim Kelly As anyone who's read my stuff on here before has probably gleaned by now, I don't give a fuck about a lot of the bands my beloved bros here at Metal Injection (or most people, for that matter) are into. I don't care about Mastodon, I don't care about Baroness, I [...]
The most famous Nintendo-core band of all (and yes, I found a slew of underground bands playing Nintendo-core back when mp3.com was still cool) is back with another album. I have to admit, it’s hard to make those 8-bit sounds work in a band who’s sound is based around a video game system that came [...]
Metal bands often talk of war, but few actually sound like it. Amon Amarth and Bolt Thrower have built careers around war themes, yet sonically they only cover "marching off to battle." The machine gun parts of Metallica's "One" were controlled and clinical, which war is not; shootouts end in red and brown stains. The [...]
